Football’s biggest star Cristiano Ronaldo paid €19 million for a business jet made by Israel Aerospace Industries, according to Portuguese media reports.
The Real Madrid star, who is currently starring in an Israeli television commercial for the HOT cable channel, wasted no time in trying out his new toy. According to the Correo da Manha newspaper, he flew the second-hand Gulfstream G200 from his home in Madrid to London earlier this week to the premiere of a documentary film about him.
The Gulfstream G200 was designed by the Israel Aerospace Industries and was originally known as the IAI Galaxy. Israel Aerospace Industries updated the twin-engine jet in 2011 to the G280.
The G200 can hold up to 12 people – 10 passengers and two pilots. The jet has a kitchen and two bathrooms.
